I'm look for some really nice and good value stainless steel tri-ply clad cookware. I'm replacing my old worn out teflon-coated nonstick pots and pans. I want tri-ply cookware that cooks evenly, is very sturdy, and can go in the oven and the dishwasher without problems. [more inside]

How do you come back to a profession you barely started?

I went to pastry school five years ago. I was seduced away from the bakery by good money in an office job. Now I've ditched the office and have been working retail -- and just got a retail job in a bakery a month ago. I've been working in the back a little and making inroads there; now I'm baking 2/5 days a week. I feel patisserie calling me, but how do I get my confidence in the kitchen back? [more inside]

Is Chef School Cool?

I want to become a better cook, is chef school the nuclear option? As a child, my mother insisted that I do the eating and not the cooking. Despite her best intentions, I ended up quite clueless on how to cook. In college, I improved by cooking for myself and quite enjoyed it. I just graduated from college and I'd like to pick up a tangible skill on the side and attend chef school. The reason is because I've only been cooking for 2-3 years and would like to improve faster than the oh-just-keep-at-it-and-it-comes-with-age-and-experience rate. [more inside]
